Yes, she does. I was just saying that the writing of her book about the Queen Mother was not very nice.

To be honest, I think it was the strong character of the Queen Mum that got George VI through a lot of what he had to deal with.

I've read one book by "Lady" Colin Campbell and it was so full of "those close to the family" and "sources high up in the palace" that it turned me off her permanently. This woman was actually married to Lord Colin Ivar Campbell from 1974-1975 which, to me, had the duration and shelf life of edible underwear and has been trading on that name ever since *alluding* to *know* things. The Daily Fail does better than she does in my book.

Totally, totally agree Osipi. I think she was his backbone. Whether people like her or not, (meaning extravagance etc) the QM was a great consort for the King and his people. JMO

she is still entitled to call herself Lady Colin.. and she problaby has got society connextions, even if she's inclined to go in for very wildly inaccurate writing.

I've found Lady Colin Campbell's writings on the BRF to be very sensational ... too sensational as a matter of fact and very distasteful.

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth visited Scotland in September 1948 and opened the Braemar Highland Games. It was can important occasion because it marked the centenary of the Royal Family's patronage of the games.
